So, its mid January, half way through the first month of the new year. & we finally have some snow, yay! I love snow. But I hate the cold. I know that probably doesn’t make sense. Maybe if I put it this way … I love watching the snow from inside. The blanket of white brightens up the gray, gloomy days of winter. Only thing is, if we get a bright sunny day, its blinding with the sun reflecting off the snow.
The past 8-10 years or so we really haven’t gotten much snow. When we used to get snow from Nov./Dec. & you didn’t see a blade of grass until the end of March or April. This is the first year we’ve gotten a decent bit of snow. But we get several inches then it warms up a couple days later & it melts. But we’ve had some really cold weather the past month. Temps in the teens & single digits. It was -5 the other night. But then we had a couple days that were in the upper 50’s & 60’s too. Crazy weather!!!
The past couple months have seemed like one thing after another kept happening. They say when it rains it pours. Well, it was a torrential down pour. First, I got a nasty flu. Then a couple days before Christmas, a lady hit into my car with her car. We were both going the same direction. She was beside me, to my left. She said she didn’t see me & was coming into my lane. & she hit right into me, pushing me up over the curb. Thankfully, it wasn’t all that bad. Just some dents & scratches on the drivers side.
I started feeling better. But then I got another bad flu. Which I’m still getting over. We had some really cold weather & had gotten some ice that encased my whole car. So I missed some really important appointments. And there were quite a few other things that happened too. But, to much to go into now. Its just been one thing after another after another. I guess it could be worse. But, I sure hope things start turning around & getting better real soon.
We were asked to share the link to the video of Mark giving out hugs for our success of all the “Kindness” we posted in our group. They were posts for last week for “kindness” that we either gave or saw. We were told that if we posted 4,000 posts, Mark would go & give 100 hugs to strangers. Well we over doubled that. Wooo hooo! Way to go class!!! There were over 8,000 posts as of 5:00 pm Saturday. So if you’d like, you can check out the Hugs Video here …. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdubjsNiiak&feature=youtu.be
This week the lesson was mainly about concentration & consciousness. A couple key points were … Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical value. & Desire added to concentration will wrench any secret from nature. For the exercise were to concentrate on the method in the lesson. To remember that power comes through repose. & to concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact.
I hope your week is going good. & you have a wonderful weekend!!!
